Hullo Atuldom

Last year, in July, I discovered that “Ghar Ka Chiraag” as a title has been used twice in Bollywood. I have written briefly about this in this post. Then I went on to speak about the “Ghar Ka Chiraag” of the ’80s.

Today we are revisiting “Ghar Ka Chiraag” of the ’60s. Four of its songs are present on the blog.

Song Date of post Reamrks
Aao tumhen bataaoon ke maa kya hai 17 september 2012 (debut on the blog)
Aaj rota hai kyun 17 September 2012 (rare song as it is filmed on Dev Kumar who normally played a baddie.)
Ik paise ka sawaal hai mere daata 14 September 2016 (there is a comment to this post saying that all the big names in the cast had miniscule screen-time)
Jaane kaise chori chori balmaa ne dekha 22 June 2017

The last post from this movie was nearly five years back. The movie had six songs in all, let us take it a step closer to yyiippeeeehood. The songs of the movie were written by Kaifi Azmi and tuned by Madan Mohan. Only three singers were used:- Asha Bhonsle, Lata Mangeshkar and Mohd Rafi. Jagdev Bhambri was the producer- director and Hrishikesh Mukherjee was the editor. As per the comments posted (to an earlier post) Dev Kumar and Indrani Mukherjee were the lead with Dharmendra and Biswajeet making special appearances. I would like some reader who has more information about the film to enlighten us as to Waheeda Rehman, Balraj Sahni, Chand Usmani and Abhi Bhattacharya’s roles in the film.

The song from this movie, that Atulji posted, in July 2012, was a rare song as it was filmed on Dev Kumar. Dev Kumar was born Chaman Lal Kohli in 1930 who was a fan of Dilip Kumar and Dev Anand. Hope that explains why he called himself ‘Dev Kumar’ in films. (More on Dev Kumar can be found in this video of Tabassum Talkies)

Today’s song is in memory of Madan Mohan the creator of such wonders as “Dil dhoondhta phir wahi”, “koi patthar se na maare”, “meri yaad mein tum na aansoo bahana”, “tumse bichhad ke chain kahan hum payenge”, “agar mujhse mohabbat hain”, “aap ki nazron ne samjha pyar ke kaabil” and 624 other songs in 93 movies (as per the stats tab of our blog).The blog already has 560 of Madan Mohan’s compositions. Additionally. the stats tab says that three songs written by him and six sung by him are on the blog.

There are stalwarts among the blog’s followers who will tell us that Madanji’s father – Rai Bahadur Chunilal Kohli – desperately tried to keep him away from the film industry. He was schooled in Lahore, Mumbai and Dehradun. His journey in the entertainment world began with All India Radio, where he was a program assistant first at Lucknow then Delhi. He loved singing and 1947/48 saw him record a ghazal or two. He also recorded duets, with Lata Mangeshkar (who considered him to be her brother) under Ghulam Haider for the 1948 released “Shaheed”; but the songs were not used in the movie. Initially he was assistant to composers Shyam Sunder, SD Burman etc. (need confirmation on all of these from the stalwarts among the blog’s followers) He passed away on 14th July 1975 when he was only 51.
I know of at least two movies of the new millennium that paid homage to this maestro who was fond of ghazals in their own small style

(1) the Amitabh Bachchan- Akshay Kumar- Bobby Deol starrer “Ab tumhare hawale watan saathiyo” used the cross-line of one of Madanji’s popular songs from ‘Haqeeqat’ (1964)

(2) Yash Chopra’s “Veer Zaara” was a more fitting tribute to the composer (my opinion) where we can enjoy Madanji’s, hitherto, unused tunes.
I have read somewhere that he amassed an amazing record of compositions, the majority of which were either unutilized for lack of appropriate films or alternate tunes for his albums.

Our Rajaji has poured his thoughts on Madan Mohanji into this post.


Song-Ae mehlon mein rahne waalon (Ghar Ka Chiraag)(1967) Singer-Asha Bhonsle, Lyrics-Kaifi azmi, MD-Madan Mohan

Lyrics (Provided by Prakashchandra)

Ae mehlon mein rahne waalon
Ae mehlon mein rahne waalon
mehlon se kabhi to nikalte ho
dekhe hain kabhi unke aansoo
thhukra ke jinhen tum chalte ho
Ae mehlon mein rahne waalon

kam se kam insaan samjho
in kismat ke maaron ko
aahen chhalni kar denge
sone ki deewaaron ko
patthar dil bhi badal daalo
kapde jaise badalte ho
Ae mehlon mein rahne waalon

nirdhan kaise jeete hain
ye tum kaise jaanoge
apna dil jab tootegaa
sab ka gham (?) pehchaanoge
kaanton par bhi chalo ik din
phoolon per to macahlte ho
Ae mehlon mein rahne waalon

jiske sapne chheene hain
usko meethhe sapne do
jiske armaan loote hain
usko armaan apne do
kuchh to karke dikhaao tum
baithhe ho aankhen malte ho
Ae mehlon mein rahne waalon
mehlon se kabhi to nikalte ho
dekhe hain kabhi unke aansoo
thhukra ke jinhen tum chalte ho
Ae mehlon mein rahne waalon

Hullo Atuldom

“Ghar Ka Chiraag” is a title that has been used twice in Bollywood- in 1967 and 1989. The 1967 film had a cast of Dharmendra, Waheeda Rehman, Balraj Sahni, Indrani Mukherjee, Dev Kumar, Biswajeet etc and had music by Madan Mohan for songs written by Kaifi Azmi. This was directed and produced by Jagdev Bhambri.
The 1989 film had Rajesh Khanna leading a cast of Neelam, Chunky Pandey, Om Shivpuri, Shafi Inamdaar, Navin Nischol and Dipika Chikhalia in a special appearance. It had music by Bappi Lahiri and Anjaan was the lyricist. This one was directed by Sikander Bharti and produced by Rajeev Kumar Choudhry.

The content in both the films seem to be different going by the synopsis available on the internet. But I know for a fact that “Ghar Ka Chiraag” (1989) was majorly inspired by the 1969 Balraj Sahni- Sadhana- Sanjay Khan starrer “Ek Phool Do Mail”. This statement of mine is sufficient to give the followers an idea about the movie, correct? Of course, there were minor differences in the story. In “Ek Phool Do Mali” (EPDM) Sadhana becomes an unwed mother because she is molested, whereas “Ghar Ka Chiraag” (GKC) had Neelam getting pregnant with Chunky Pandey’s child. In EPDM Sanjay was a mountaineer and GKC had Chunky as a racing enthusiast. Rest of the story was same in both the movies. And both movies had melodious songs.

GKC had eight songs with two songs having happy and sad versions. “Tutak tutak tutak tutiya” was very popular when the movie had released and I think it was inspired by some Punjabi folk song; this one had two versions. Another song ‘yeh kismat hai kya, jaanta hai wahi’ also had two versions. The happy version is when Kumar (Rajesh Khanna) is celebrating his happiness with wife (Deepika) and friends. We see that this song is echoing the thoughts that Dilip Kumar and Shammi Kapoor had put forth in this song.

In the second version we have Rajesh Khanna singing out his life experiences, and says ‘ek thokar lagi, toota sara nasha’.

Bappi Lahiri used Mohammad Aziz, Amit Kumar and Sapna Mukherjee (youtube is crediting Alka Yagnik for this song, need confirmation) for this song and Alisha Chinai and Amit Kumar for ‘Tutak tutak tutiya’. Udit Narayan, Alka Yagnik and Sarika Kapoor (another new name, for me at least) were the other playback singers.
Mohammad Aziz who sang the sad version of today’s song would have celebrated his 67th birthday on July 2nd. He was born in Kolkatta. He sang, primarily, in Hindi, Bengali and Odia films plus some Sufi devotional songs and also various genres in 10 other languages. He was also credited as Munna in some movies. ‘Mard’ by Anu Malik was his breakthrough though the 1984 movie ‘Amber’ with music by Sapan-Jagmohan was his debut in Bollywood. He has sung alongside all the prominent singers of the ’80s and ’90s with music composed by RD Burman, Laxmi-Pyare, Ravindra Jain, Raamlaxman etc; even OP Nayyar and Naushad.

Amit Kumar who has sung the duet with Sapna Mukherjee (or it could be Alka Yagnik, as per the tagging on youtube) celebrates his birthday on July 3rd turns 69!!!!! Is it so!!!!! Unbelieveable!!!! Cannot think of some people as aging, right no 🙂

We have enough fans of Amit Kumar on this blog and everyone knows his history, lineage etc. His last film appearance was in the 1989 release ‘Mamta Ki Chhaon’ which was a movie left incomplete by Kishore Kumar-his father. He had acted in many movies made by his father beginning with “Door Gagan Ki Chhaon Mein” in 1964. He won the Filmfare award for best singer in 1982 for the 1981 release “Love Story”.

Here is remembering Munna a.k.a Mohammad Aziz on his birth anniversary and Wishing Amit Kumar many more Happy Returns. May he continue to entertain us. He is launching a special RD Burman tribute on his birth-date on his YouTube channel… looking forward to it

Song-Ye kismat hai kya jaante hain wahi zamaane mein hai jinki kismat buri (Ghar Ka Chiraag)(1989) Singers-Alka Yagnik/ Sapna Mukherjee, Amit Kumar, Lyrics-Anjaan, MD-Bappi Lahiri

Lyrics

Happy version

aadmi kismat se kya
lad paayega bolo yahaan
darr ke kismat se ruka hai
iss zameen pe aasmaan

ye kismat hai kya jaante hain wahi
zamaane mein hai jinki kismat buri
ye kismat hai kya jaante hain wahi
zamaane mein hain jinki kismat buri
hooo ooooo
ooooo
ye kismat hai kya kisne dekha yahaan
ye kismat hai kya kisne dekha yahaan
apni kismat banaata hai khud aadmi

ye kismat hai kya jaante hai wahi
zamaane mein hain jinki kismat buri
ye kismat hai kya kisne dekha yahaan
apni kismat banaata hai khud aadmi

jitne oonche ho insaan ke hausle
utne oonche mahal uske kadmon taley
ho jitne oonche ho insaan ke housle
utne unche mahal uske kadmon taley

jinki mehenat ke dam se mahal hai khade
unko rehne ko milte hai kyon jhonpde
unki mehenat main ye akal shaamil na thhi
apni kismat banaata hai khud aadmi

ye kismat hai kya jaante hain wahi
zamaane mein hai jinki kismat buri

laakh mehnat se seenche koi gulsitaan
baag mein gul khila na sake baaghbaan
laakh mehnat se seenche koi gulsitaan
baag mein gul khila na sake baaghbaan
uski mehenat mein hogi kahi kuchh kami
warna kya hai jo kar na sake aadmi

aadmi khud ko insaan bana na saka
apni kismat banaayega kya aadmi
ye kismat hai kya kisne dekha yahaan
apni kismat banaata hai khud aadmi

aaj ka aadmi chaand ko chhoo saka
phir bhi dharti ko khushaal na kar saka
yahaan mehenat se sholon pe bhi gul khile
buri kismat se barsaat mein ghar jale
aaa aaaa aaa aa
aa aa aa aa
ye takraar sadiyon se yoonhi chale
magar ho sake na kabhi faisle
ye sach hai ki mehnat se sab kuchh miley
magar jab ye kismat yahaan saath de
na mehenat hai chhoti na kismat badi
hai donon ke dam pe ye duniya khadi
ye kismat hai kya jaante hain khadi
zamaane mein hain jinki kismat buri
ye kismat hai kya kisne dekha yahaan
apni kismat banaata hai khud aadmi

——————————————–
Sad version (Sung by Md Aziz )
——————————————–

har dua ek baddua
kyun ban gayi,
pal mein yahaan
bewafa kismat bhi,
uthth gaya sar se aasmaan

ye kismat hai kya jaanta hai wahi
zamaane mein hai jiski kismat buri
aadmi khud ko insaan bana na saka
apni kismat banayega kya aadmi
ye kismat hai kya jaanta hai wahi
zamaane mein hai jinki kismat buri

ye kismat hai karti ajab faisle
yahaan milke sab kuchh
bhi kuchh na miley
bhatakti hai yoon dar-badar zindagi
ke marke bhi insaan mar na sakey
ye kismat hai kya jaanta hai wahi
zamaane mein hai jiski kismat buri

ek thhokar lagi toota saara nasha
ab hai jaanaa kahaan kuchh nahin hai pata
laake kismat ne chhoda hai kis mod par
jo musaafir thha khud ban gaya raasta
ye kismat hai kya jaanta hai wahi
zamaane mein hai jiski kismat buri
aadmi khud ko insaan bana na saka
apni kismat banayega kya aadmi

In Hindi movies, lip syncing of songs is mainly the preserve of the lead actors. Sometimes we find character actors too getting to lip sync a song or two. viz suffering maa is seen singing bhajans or remonstrating with the Almighty. 🙂
